Case ID#179: Upgrading

The client had a problem with the reliability of the door sensitive edge system on a fleet of 30 year old vehicles. We updated the system using the latest type of electrically conductive obstacle sensing door nosing seals. We designed purpose built electronics to interface with the existing door controllers and provide remote malfunction indication.


Case ID#180: Retrofit

This customer had been successfully overhauling the air cylinders used on his door system for about 20 years, a tribute to the long life of the original part. Due to irreparable damage on some cylinders, the client had exhausted his stock of original spare cylinders. We were able to re – engineer and organize the manufacture of a replacement part using most of the same components so that the same consumable items such as seals could still be used.


Case ID#181: Consultation

This client came to us with a problem caused by occasional contact bounce of the safety relays in their vehicle ATC system resulting in doors failing to open. As it was going to be very expensive and take a long time to resolve the ATC issue, we came up with a software solution in the door system software to enable the door system to recover automatically, thus preventing the major service disruption caused by all doors on one side of the car failing to open.


Case ID#182: Test Equipment

This client came to us with a problem in detecting issues caused by contact resistance on relays in door control panels. We designed an automatic test bench that could carry out a full functional test of the control panel, measure contact resistance of the relays, determine if they were acceptable or not and print out a report of the results. We also provided on site training in the use of the equipment to the customers staff.
